Otterbein won its first Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) title in 2012, going 26-8 and defeating Mount Union in the league's tournament championship match. The program has also made four- consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances spanning 2010-13, it's first four in school history.

McDonald and the Cards strung together a school-record 15-match winning streak during the 2011 season, which saw a 26-6 overall record and a five-set victory over eventual national champion Wittenberg University.

Otterbein volleyball has garnered six AVCA All-American awards and four CoSIDA Academic All-America awards over the last three seasons. The program cracked the national Top-25 poll for the first time ever in 2012 and reached as high as No. 8 in 2013.

McDonald came to Otterbein in 2007 from Mount Union, where she served as assistant volleyball coach while also assisting in men’s and women’s track and field.

A 2005 graduate of Wittenberg, she was a two-time All-American outside hitter in helping lead the Tigers into the NCAA Division III Tournament four times, including two advancements into the Elite Eight. She majored in business management with a minor in sociology.

While at Mount Union, McDonald took part in a volleyball program that improved from 15-16 in 2005 to 22-10 in 2006.

McDonald has also coached several club volleyball teams, including stints as head coach for a Mid Ohio club team for 15-year-olds (2006), and a Midwest Elite open team for 16-year-olds (2005). She also hosts Otterbein volleyball overnight and day camps for different ages and skill levels, ranging from young newcomers to college bound players.

Great drills

They have lots of drills and exercises that teach you hands on certain skills. Each skill hitting, setting, and bumping, had its own branch and they went into depth. They had good coaches, fun games, and helped you get to know your fellow campers. You never get bored!

The camp is very organized with a friendly staff who worked great with the girls. My daughter's skills did improve and she had a great time. I feel it was money well spent. She will return next summer.
